As I posted yesterday, I just spent three days in the Gatlinburg area and while the power shoppers hit nearly every store they passed, I only went into a few. One of my stops was the Pepper Palace, which my son had suggested I visit. I didn’t know what to expect, but this place was awesome, with lots of items (mostly hot sauces) from all over the country plus the ones they make themselves. As it turns out, the Pepper Palace is headquartered in Sevier County and makes a large variety of hot sauces, salsas, BBQ sauces, and spices. They have three other stores in tourist locations, but the store in Gatlinburg is the Mother-Ship.
I went in there mainly to see if they had Fire Ant Juice, which is a hot sauce that comes highly recommended by Chris Grove at Nibble Me This. Thanks to a sales lady, I found it and learned that if I bought 5 items, I’d get the 6th one free, so I commenced to tasting their company products. Beverly was doing the same and we quickly found 5 more items that we really liked, along with a new salt mill – not too bad, I got out for $75. This is part of one wall.
Now that I'm home and on my secure network, I feel comfortable entering passwords, so I had a lot of your blogs to get caught up on.
Have a great day and thanks for visiting.
